Outfit: Red Lace & Black

IMG_3809

This is the outfit I wore on New Years Eve! I usually don’t go out on New Years Eve because it’s not a significant time for me and the crowds may not be worth it. However, this year I decided to try going out and, although I have never ever seen the city and the trains so busy, it was a good night. The husband and I caught up with a couple of groups of friends- we even had an amazing location at a high rise building to see the fireworks (see my Instagram). I decided to wear my Kitten D’Amour Scarlet Lace Dress for the first time. I posted this dress in a wishlist post a few months ago here but couldn’t buy it because it was $250 and I had already purchased another rather pricey dress from the same collection. I waited very patiently, constantly checking if it was on sale, and finally it was reduced to $99! I had to buy it, such a discount. I also got the hem taken up substantially. The below knee length meant that there was just way too much material and it swamped my frame. It also made it more formal and generally less wearable. It looks a lot better now. The lace is so pretty and the cutout design at the back is unique. I wish more clothes had this design. I like the match between the lace, my lipstick shade and my hair colour.

The bag is a Christmas gift which I also used for the first time on New Years Eve. It seemed to suit the occasion and it’s such an adorable shape. I just wish it was a little bigger to fit my phone but it looks good so that’s the main thing. The shoes are also a purchase I made before Christmas which arrived a couple of days ago from the US. They are the Sindy flats from B.A.I.T. I also got the Seaform version. I love how B.A.I.T Footwear have been releasing new styles lately. B.A.I.T Footwear are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned which is why I now have eight pairs and seem to keep buying the same style in multiple colours. I’m planning to do a post on my B.A.I.T Footwear collection soon. I hardly wear black so this is a different look for me.

  1. It's such a beautiful dress! I love how the lace gives a little pop of color to an otherwise black dress. We decided to go out for once on new years as well. It was fun but I definitely prefer a quiet evening at home.
